Often I don't see it if Ive been wrong
And boy have I been wrong
Often I won't need it till it's gone
But by then it's gone

Often I make the worst decisions
Say that it's great and I know it isn't so
It's happening so often

Often I won't wake up from a dream
You know I love to dream
Often I don't stand up for what I believe
There's nothing left to believe

So often I make the worst decisions
Say that it's great and I know it isn't so
It's happening so

I often wish that you were here
I could know eventually

Dodoo Dodoo Dodoo Dodoo Dodoo
Yeah Yeah Yeah

Often I don't see it when I've been wrong
And boy have I been wrong
Often I won't need it till it's gone
But by then it's gone

Often I make the worst decisions
Say that it's great and I know it isn't so
It's happening so
It's happening so often

    General CommentThis song sounds so simple and easy in the ears. It's definitely one of my favourites of those songs that are uknown for most people.
    It was not written by Robbie, still it sounds sound sincere. It just makes me feel good after messing things up. I guess it talks about being blinded by your own mistakes, making it look like everything is ok, when in your inside you know you are just wrecked and in dispair...About wanting to change and not knowing how :(

    It's just so sad...but it makes me smile...they say that accepting you are screwed is the first step to get out of the hole...who knows...

    But it's happening so often...for so long now...

    General CommentI wanted to add that this one was written by Gary Nuttal, a guy that's been in Robbie's band for a long, long time. It was perfect for him, though.
